Not to be confused with the town in Tuscany (where they make wine from Sangiovese), Montepulciano The Grape is the 2nd most plentifully planted in Italy. Here in Abruzzo, the headquarters of Montepulciano where the mountains slope into the Adriatic sea, the varietal enjoys plenty of ripening sunshine with cooling coastal ventilation.

This is a great food wine, with ample body to stand up to heartier dishes but with plenty of juicy dark red berry fruit and lively acidity for lighter fare as well.
